Description by

The history of the hard sell and not always truthful advertising flashes before your eyes in this remarkable collection of politically incorrect cigarette commercials from the 1950s and 60s. Doctors, famous actors, sports heroes and beautiful women light up and extol the virtues of a smooth flavorful smoke, oblivious to the health issues that would arise in subsequent decades.

Product Description:

This fascinating and sometimes hilarious release compiles a number of commercials for cigarettes - aired during the 1950's and 1960's, when TV ads for cigarettes were legal, and attitudes about smoking were radically different. In addition to promoting the practice as healthy, the ads also feature awesomely out of date attitudes about gender, society, and everything else.

I really don;t know how you rate a documentary like this. It's not even a documentary - just a collection of now incorrect ads for cigarettes from the 1950's and 1960's. Unfortunately, I remembered many of them and, I'm sorry to say, smoked like a chimney. Having kicked the habit quite some time ago, I found this film interesting if, for no other reason, nostalgic purposes. It's amazing, looking back, how tobacco companies used any and every way to sell their product.
